PHOTOS: Minibus collision causes temporary blackout

Sunny Acres and neighbouring communities were plunged into darkness Wednesday after a minibus (M451) crashed into a utility pole, breaking it, at around 8 p.m.

Reports are that several people were injured in the accident but the injuries are not life-threatening. About six passengers were reportedly on board.

It is alleged that the driver may have fell asleep, causing the accident.

The accident occurred in the vicinity of Super J/Gablewoods Mall (north), causing a temporary blackout from Choc to La Clery on the John Compton Highway, sources have told St. Lucia News Online (SNO).

Electricity was restored to some areas from around 8:45 p.m but close to midnight SNO received reports that some residences in Sunny Acres were still without power.
